Mladá Boleslav/Geneva, 5 March 2018 – ŠKODA AUTO is introducing the ŠKODA KODIAQ’s new range-topping variant, Laurin & Klement, which was named by company founders Laurin and Klement. The ŠKODA KODIAQ Laurin & Klement treats up to seven occupants to a particularly extensive range of equipment and high degree of comfort as standard. The range-topping version of the large SUV is celebrating its world premiere at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. Full-LED headlights, a radiator grille with vertical slats and a chrome surround, 19-inch ‘Sirius’ alloy wheels and model-specific front and rear bumpers emphasise the stylish appearance of the model. The elegant interior impresses with leather seat covers and Piano Black decorative details.
The ŠKODA KODIAQ’s highest trim level, Laurin & Klement, is characterised by an elegant design and premium equipment. ŠKODA’s new top-of-the-range ŠKODA KODIAQ thus offers the ultimate driving experience. The ŠKODA KODIAQ Laurin & Klement follows in the footsteps of company founders Václav Laurin and Václav Klement, meeting their quality aspiration: “Only the best is good enough for our customers.” Starting in 1895, the Czech mobility pioneers had first worked on the construction of bicycles, before unveiling their first self-developed car in 1905. Their company then merged with ŠKODA Works in 1925.

Infotainment and connectivity
The mobile online services from ŠKODA Connect are extensive additions to the infotainment offering. The Infotainment Online Services provide information and entertainment and the Care Connect Services provide support in numerous situations as well as remote vehicle access. Online Traffic Information is an important element of the Mobile Online Services: it displays the current traffic flow on the selected journey and suggests alternative routes in the event of a traffic jam. In addition, the services provide information about nearby petrol stations, parking spaces, news and the weather.
The Care Connect Services include the automatic Emergency Call, which connects to an emergency call centre when a restraint system has been deployed or can also be operated manually; the Proactive Service, which can be used to arrange a vehicle service; and Remote Access, which allows the driver to remotely access information about vehicle data via the ŠKODA Connect app on their smartphone.
In conjunction with the Amundsen or Columbus infotainment systems, up to eight mobile devices can be paired using the Wi-Fi hotspot. The In-Car Communication system relays the driver’s voice to the rear speakers.
